All Sorts of UpdatesHmmm. Since this is supposedly a knitting blog, I might as well get a few things off my chest. First, I'm definitely in a "small project" mood.

The uber-friendly kitty wasn't the only wild animal we saw - isn't it adorable?
And speaking of wildlife, this is what followed me into the apartment when I brought in the groceries:
